The traditional and most common process for apparel printing, Plastisol utilizes inks made from PVC particles. They lay on top of the fabric and bond with the fibers, resulting in a flexible, solid layer of decoration. These inks can achieve vibrant colors as well as both high opacity and transparency. Plastisol prints result in a medium hand feel — the greater the opacity, the greater the hand. In order to color match, we require a physical sample in-house.
Our own exclusive method, Soft Hand printing is a hybrid Water Based Discharge and Plastisol process that utilizes Plasticharge inks. It achieves prints with a soft, low hand feel that are incredibly lightweight, flexible and breathable after being washed. These inks soak into the fabric instead of sitting on top of it, essentially making the print look and feel like it’s part of the shirt. This method is eco-friendly and phthalate free.
Chino inks are softened Plastisol inks that provide a softer hand than traditional Plastisol inks, but result in more muted, less vibrant colors, especially on darker garments. It is a great choice for achieving a softer hand feel on garments that don’t work well with Soft Hand printing, though they are limited to a distressed, vintage-style finish. In order to color match, we require a physical sample in-house.
